CIHT Podcast – Data as National Infrastructure

Teresa Jolley and Nic Cary, CIHT podcast Data as National Infrastructure

In this CIHT podcast recorded in February 2017, Nic Cary, Head of Digital Transformation and Open Data at the Department for Transport, and Teresa Jolley Creative Director at DEFT153 Ltd explore:

  • why we need to consider data about our highways and transport assets as core infrastructure,
  • how highways and transport authorities can benefit from this analogy to change the way we value and work with our national data assets,
  • the need for a co-ordinated framework, common standards and interoperability for data across authorities, through a ‘HighwaysAPI’
  • the benefits for asset management, journey planning, and the future of autonomous vehicles, and Mobility as a Service

Both Teresa and Nic will be at the CIHT National conference 2nd March 2017. Nic is part of the afternoon plenary session exploring future trends and activities across the sector, and Teresa will be live-blogging the event @teresacjolley / #CIHTconf
